4Runner does more than just take the kids to baseball practice

We borrowed a 4Runner Sport Edition when we tripped out to the Downieville gathering this year.

Very nice ride when carrying a little bit of weight and it handles darn good for a truck. On Hwy 49, when the road got curvy and one of our passengers got motion sickness, the truck was very predictable, didn't have any excessive body roll, and was barely working hard on the uphill portions.



3 dudes, their bikes, and camping gear fit snugly in the 4Runner





Can you believe that we got 20 mpg on the hwy when fully loaded with gear and bikes on top?

a fellow Californicator, i see!

i've a Yota' Highlander (2006). curious what rack systems were featured in the pix? a rack seems inevitable now that Jr. rides with us which (a rack) will be a first for me. i'm guessing already discussed to death but would love to hear which is better / more practical, roof or rear and why etc.

The hitch rack was purchased from Performance many years ago. Lots of adjustments and it fits 29er bikes. On top we used an Inno bike rack since they attach to most crossbars without any adapters.
